This can involve sliding down rapids, swimming down rapids, floating down fast flowing chutes and waves, walking behind some breathtaking waterfalls and of course jumping off those jaw dropping waterfalls.

However it is suitable even if you can’t swim as we provide you with buoyancy aids.  For younger less physically able customers we offer alternative combined rock and water activities such as gorge walking.

Where can I go canyoning?

You can’t do canyoning to this sort of level and in such stunning surroundings in many other parts of the UK.  It should definitely be on the list of things to do before you pass your sell by date.

In certain circumstances we can arrange for your group to filmed as they descend the gorge but this is only by prior arrangement.

I would say it was exactly as expected, it was a lot of fun! Both me and my partner had a great afternoon, we both wish it was longer. Cynan and Stef were both really great and made us feel safe. We would definitely come back again, I’ve been recommending it to our friends and family as well! – M Kerwood, 2023

I found contacting call of the wild very easy, all the information that they sent was excellent and easy to forward to the people doing the canyoning in wales. Plenty of information was sent prior to the event on what to take how long the traveling time was to the canyoning and where to go. I would definitely use them again. Went canyoning at the end of October and was plenty warm enough in the wetsuits provided. The guides Ed and Jay made the trip very enjoyable with lots of activities and jumps in the water between the first and third waterfalls. It was very fast paced with not much standing around. The guides had excellent knowledge of the river and the safety expects needed. Everyone had a thoroughly good 3 hours and were exhausted by the end. Thank you. – D Fricker, 2023
